Thank you for joining us (whether in person or in spirit) at our "Insight in Impact" reception on Nov 8. It was our pleasure to celebrate Diwali by updating our donors on how their support of education is "lighting up" the lives of thousands of children in India.
Special thanks to our wonderful and inspiring alumni speakers - Mrunal Khadke and Namrata Khanvilkar - for being with us and sharing their Akanksha stories. And, a shout-out to our dynamic board members - Shankar, Ramesh and Punya - for their participation in the program.
We wish you a relaxing Thanksgiving break and a joyous holiday season. ... See MoreSee Less
Our third annual Gala was an incredible success, and we owe it all to our supporters! We raised over $750,000 for @theakankshafoundation's work in India. It's extraordinary what our community can accomplish when we come together. We all feel energized and inspired by the stories shared by Akanksha's communities, educators, and children.
Look out for more photos, videos, and more to come soon @theakankshafund. #akankshagala2018 #akankshafund #educatingchildren ... See MoreSee Less
The Akanksha Fund is excited to be featuring the I Dream Like You: Stories We Walk Past book at our Gala this year, which captures the incredible stories of 25 Akanksha alumni. This book represents the stories of the million young people in India and the barriers that they must overcome to reach their dreams. #akanksha #theakankshafund #educatingchildren #akankshagala2018Well, presenting the Akanksha wall of stories.
Every picture on this wall depicts a story; a story of dreams, dedication, hardships and successes.
